Madhav (Uday Kiran) and Seenu (Jatin) are neighbors and best
buddies. They play football representing the AP team. During
their trip to Calcutta, Seenu gets injured in order to save
Madhav from an accident. Doctors say that Seenu is unfit to
play football and he can walk only by using a walking stick.
Seenu takes a vow from Madhav that he should not tell anybody
that he was injured while saving Madhav.
(Arti Agarwal) is a middle class girl who is raised by their
grand parents (K Viswanath and Sujatha). Madhav happens to
see Amrutha one fine day and falls in love with her.
If I start telling the relationships and complexity of the
relations, you would complain to me after watching the film
that I deprived you of enjoying the happenings on the screen.
So let me stop writing the story line and start jumping into
actor's performance department.
Kiran: Uday Kiran has given his best performance till
date with this film. There is tremendous maturity and naturalness
in his histrionics. He is improving as an artist from film
Jatin's character is very much similar to that of Sanjay Dutt
in Saajan. It's an underplaying and cool character.
He portrayed his character with élan.
Agarwal: For the first time she got a character that has
more scope to emote and prove her skills in the department
of dramatics and she excelled in it. Its a pleasure to she
her wearing all traditional dresses in this film.
K Viswanath played the role of 'tatayya' to perfection.
Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao and Giri Babu played character
roles. Sakuntala's character of 'Surammatha' is entertaining.
She imitated veteran actress Suryakantham in diction and mannerisms.
Sivaji Raja played the role of a selfish alludu, who has different
personalities. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam provided ample entertainment
as the football coach.
- Screenplay: To tell you the truth, I took the route
of escapism in the storyline section of this review, as writing
down the story of this film is a pretty difficult task. This
is the story that can only be seen on the silver screen but
cannot be narrated in alphabets. Screenplay of the film is
very tight. Though the pace of play is little slow on the
screen, MS Raju made sure that he played with the hearts and
emotions of the viewers to a pleasing effect.
Direction by Paruchuri Murali is pretty good. The narration
is very interesting and he got the viewers attention with
in 15 minutes of the film (with the incident where Jatin is
subjected to accident) and from then onwards he maintained
a steady grip on the attentiveness of the audience.
Dialogues by Paruchuri brothers are very natural and balanced
in this film. There is no exaggeration in the dialogues. There
are good and humorous one-liners as well.
Music by RP Patnaik is the highlight of the film. A movie
has five dimensions when it comes to convey the matter to
the audience. One is the visual (photography). Second one
is the situation. Third one is the word (dialogue). Fourth
one is the expression (by cast). Fifth one and the most important
one that pleases the audience both directly and subconsciously
is music. RP Patnaik's music has got a big share in the final
outcome. His oral rendition where he croons ragas at appropriate
times to elevate the emotions on the screen is simply the
best. Usha's Emo
Avunemo(humming) is also effectively used for Arti for
vital scenes. The songs are great and background music is
Magical gems by Sirivennela accentuated the mood and requirement
of the situation for the situational songs.
S Gopal Reddy has delivered his best work till date with this
film. He is simply superb. Visuals in this film are rich and
suit the situation naturally.
MS Raju should be commended for having excellent production
and promotional values. He said in an interview
to idlebrain that he aims to make this film the best among
the love stories recently made in Telugu and looks like he
has fair chances of achieving that target.
2. Great Music
3. Excellent Photography
4. Great performances by the lead pair
5. Good sentiment and family scenes
The film is told in a very convincing way. Though the narration
is little slow, there is no dull moment in this film. All
songs are skillfully etched into the storyline and are a pleasure
to watch on the celluloid. There are at least a couple of
scenes in this film that really touch your heart very strongly
and there are whistles from the frontbenchers to those scenes.
Can you imagine people responding positively when heroine
slaps hero on the face. That's what happened in Satyam theater
today, which showed that narration of the film has engrossed
the masses to such an extent that they react to a scene like
that very positively with whistles and claps. The last 45
minutes of the film makes your heart heavy. The best and most
impressive situations in this film are where the song 'Ooruko
Hrudayama' and 'veyi
kanulato' (2nd time) are played. The effect and impact
of watching this film would be there with you for at least
few hours. To be told in mass in terms 'ee cinema gundelu
pindesindi'. Here is a film that I would recommend for
all the movie lovers to watch and enjoy!!
